Callie Barnstable fully expects to be her father's sole heir to his estate which she thinks might consist of well-worn furniture, a few mismatched dishes and some well-worn books. Much to her surprise the estate includes money and a house - one she did not remember. In Skeletons in the Attic by Judy Penz Sheluk,  Callie is in for more surprises as she heads to the Toronto suburb of Marketville.

A provision in the will requires Callie to live in the house for one year and find out who murdered her mother. Shocked because she always believed her mother just deserted them when she was six, Callie isn't sure how much she can learn from a 30-year-old cold case.

Over the years the house had been rented and the last two tenants claimed to have heard strange noises and a woman crying. Freaked by this Callie is not sure she is ready for this house.

The latest tenant, Misty Rivers, is a psychic and she is sure she can contact Callie's mother. Not ready
for spectral contact, Callie continues with her renovations. Finally one day she decides to investigate the attic to see if she can find any papers or clues as to why her mother disappeared. While she has two movers with her, she coaxes them up into the attic.

What they find sends chills down her spine. A coffin complete with a skeleton is in the attic.

Skeletons in the Attic is like a real life jigsaw puzzle. Callie begins putting the pieces together around the edges and slowly adds pieces to the middle. As she works to complete the puzzle, she reaches a startling conclusion.

Looking forward to another book by Judy Penz Shulak.
